I have a similar issue to kyleschepis.
I am not using a custom ROM. I have the stock ROM that came with the GT-N8013.
My issue started a week ago. My Galaxy Note had been having occasional issues with the external SD card. A warning would appear saying that the SD card had been removed, and a couple of seconds later it would re-mount and every thing was fine.
But last week, I picked up my note and turned the screen on (it was already started) and noticed the warning message while the screen was still locked. Then, as the second message was still being displayed letting me know that the SD card had been mounted, I swipe the screen to unlock. But instead of unlocking, my Note completely rebooted. It got as far as the logo screen (displaying "Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1"), but would go no further.
I AM able to get into the Odin download mode but CANNOT get into recovery mode no matter what I do.
I have tried re-flashing the stock ROM ("KIES_HOME_N8013UEUCMI3_N8013XARCMI3_813049_RE V00 _user_low_ship.tar.md5") several times, as well as trying to install customer recovery modes like CWM and TWRP, as well as the stock recovery. The installation in Odin seems to run fine - I get the "PASS" message at the end of the prodedure. But the power + volume up combination does NOT get me into recovery mode. Even if, as many have suggested, I continue holding the button combination until the logo screen displays a second or a third time.
I have been without my Note for a full week now, and I use it for everything. So, any help I can get would be appreciated.
I am having near the same experience as rob-x. I have had problems with some files on my SD card missing or arbitrarily renamed. I had the tab on charge and the next day it was looping through the boot screen,
I have tried flashing the firmware with Odin and also CWM, without results. I am unable to boot into recovery, only into download.
Also the only way to turn the machine off is to plug it in to charger then hold the on/off until the screen goes black.
My next plan is to flash the PIT and the firmware at the same time,
Ditto, same issue. I can flash a .tar file (I have tried CF-Auto and TRWP) in download mode using Odin but can't get the device into recovery mode.
It is just boot looping to the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 screen every 15-20 seconds. Can't even turn the damn thing off to save battery!!
Three weeks later and I am still none the wiser with my Note. It is still caught in the bootloop.
I can tell you that I have tried flashing the PIT and the stock firmware, but in my case it did not help. You are welcome to try. It didn't get any worse, but it did not get any better either. I have also tried flashing the stock German and UK ROMs for the GT-N8010 (mine is the US GT-N8013) with or without the PIT. These both fail fairly early on in the flashing process. But the behavior of the device does not change. Still the same bootloop, stuck at the same place.
Sorry for the bad news. Like I said, in my case flashing the PIT didn't help, but I have read on forums that people did have success with it. So it is definitely worth trying. It doesn't make things any worse, any way.
Let me know how it goes for you.
